Watch Alan Carr: Chatty Man

Chatty Man, presented by comedian Alan Carr is an award winning British comedy and chat show. The show is a fast moving, light hearted, venture into the world of contemporary celebrity both in the US and the UK and is jam packed with celebrity guest interviews, music, sketches and topical discussion from the world of TV, movies and the web. Carr's guests in the past have included Samuel L. Jackson, Katy Perry and Ivana Trump. Bands and singer, songwriters line up to appear on the show. Amongst the most notable so far are Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez and Florence and The Machine.

Chatty Man began as two pilot shows in May 2009. The first episode attracted an audience of 2.15 million viewers. The current show is the ninth in the series and will consist of 14 new episodes making it the longest series to date. Carr recently signed a new deal worth an estimated £4 million, that will will keep the show on air until 2014.

Carr's irrepressible wit and cheeky,chappie persona, makes the show compulsive viewing. His affable, down to earth, easy charm brings out the best in both his guests and his studio audience. A sense of jollity pervades every episode and the underlying theme and indeed Carr's "reason d'Ítre" for the whole show is quite simply, to have fun. The set is a hybrid of night club and living room and the show moves quickly from the brightly lit, uptempo revery of his musical charges to the hilarious, zany and occasionally intimate guest interviews.

Before graduating to TV, Carr for many years, did stand up and regularly opens the show with five minutes or so of his own whacky, inimitable, observations on the weird and wonderful, world of television. With tongue firmly implanted in cheek the sometimes chaotic, often irreverent, but always entertaining, Alan Carr's Chatty Man is as much a house party as it is a chat show.
